I LOVE turnip - as a child I hated it, probably because Auntie Dot always made gravy with kidneys - which I despise to this day. I always would say I didn't want any kidney, or to leave it out of any steak & kidney concoctions - Auntie Dot would tell me to "Just eat the gravy!" Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and cabbage were another examples.
Getting back to the turnip. Whilst I love vegetables sometimes if I fancy a few together it can be a bit of a faff on - so when I heard about a "Singing Turnip" recipe at Slimming world I had to give it a go.
Place turnip in microwave - full power for 15 - 20 minutes, turning once. You will hear the turnip singing!
Scoop out the pulp - absolutely gorgeous.
I had made some ham hock, split pea, lentil, barley and vegetable soup, so I spooned some into the cooked turnip and ate as I would a baked potato - skin and all.
